Walking with my girlfriend last night we were approached by a guy who then tried to punch me for no reason other than i was speaking english.
I am saddened by this, as its my first taste of this, and i have ended up with a broken hand. Anyone else suffered from this?
And yes i know poles get the same in england, so don't get defensive, just wondered if its only happened to me
I would say mate this is something that could happen anywhere, if you take out the fact your English in Poland. Exactly the same situation could rise anywhere in the world. Some people are just idiots and are looking for fights, i think you should count yourself lucky though considering in certain parts of Kingston, Jamaica you potentially are shot for being white by the local hoolies :).
It really can happen anywhere Griff. I have been told in recent weeks to ****-off back home by a guy on a bus. He'd been offering me a seat but I didn't realise he was talking to me so I didn't answer. So the next thing he's barged past me and said 'why don't you ****-off back home'. This is strange because I was born here and it is my home...I suppose sometimes people also judge on appearance only and people think I look very Polish.
That's just unlucky, to be honest if i offered somebody a seat and they did not answer, i would probably call them ignorant or something like that. I agree there is not need for 'fcuk of home' there never is. Have you experienced anymore situations like this in the UK??? or is this just a one off?
I'm sorry. Carry the knife and kill next time.
lol, clean the streets of the scum, why not :)
Or the clothes.
no that is sad, giving somebody a jaw breaker just because of the clothes they wear!!! I men really some people have nothing else to do with their lives do they!!
or the Queen
why don't the Polish like the Queen??
It happened to me too in Krakow.I was with some friends. A group of idiots stopped us and one took a knife out , for no aparant reason!! I feel sorry to say that majority of poles seem to be rascists!! Please don't take offence, as I know a few poles that are very good people!But majority seems to be hating other language,country and race!!Since Poland was admitted to Europe , it seems to have gone to their heads.You would see lots of poles bragging about their superior status as Europeans..on this forum..Only few years ago , nobody wanted Poland as part of Europe!!I think these people should be lot more humble!!
this sort of situation where they may be looking ro rob people is simple, a foreigner in a country they are not used to, plus the fact that tourists often carry large amounts of cash around with them.
Maybe it wasn't an act of bigotry but simply a random act of hooliganism and violence?
good point, brainless scum don't need a reason to do anything.
